Hey scumo the fires and droughts are getting worse

But whatever you do don't mention climate change because I mentioned it once but I think I got away with it Cheesy LOL

Deputy PM slammed after attacking 'woke capital city greenies' during bushfires

Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack has attacked people for linking climate change to conditions which enabled fires in NSW and Queensland to take hold.

The deputy prime minister has faced criticism after launching a full-throated attack against the "disgraceful, disgusting" behaviour of people linking climate change to the bushfires in Queensland and NSW.

Three people have been killed and 150 homes destroyed in NSW, while there are still 45 fires burning in central Queensland.

Firefighters across Sydney and NSW are bracing for "catastrophic" conditions on Tuesday.

"We've had fires in Australia since time began, and what people need now is sympathy, understanding, help and shelter," Michael McCormack told ABC on Monday.

"They don't need the ravings of some pure, enlightened and woke capital city greenies at this time."

'A dangerous fool'

In response, Greens MP Adam Bandt labelled the deputy prime minister a "dangerous fool" who was putting lives at risk.

"Thoughts and prayers are not enough, we need science and action too," Mr Bandt told reporters on Monday.

"They've done everything in their power to make these catastrophic fires more likely.

"When you cuddle coal in Canberra, the rest of the country burns."

Glen Innes Severn Council mayor Carol Sparks - whose home was severely damaged in a bushfire that killed two people - said "Michael McCormack needs to read the science".

"It is not a political thing. It is a scientific fact that we are going through climate change," she told ABC.


"We haven't had rain for years in some places. All the dams and creeks and rivers are dry, and we need to look at what we're going to do about that in the future," she said.

"To deny climate change is, to me, a very ill-informed and uneducated way of looking at things."

But Labor Senator Penny Wong refused to get caught in the war of words, saying the immediate focus should be on the fires.

"We've got people grieving, we've got communities at risk, we've got extraordinarily brave Australians fighting fires. This is not the time to get into that kind of debate," she said.

"Let's get through this crisis. That should be our focus now."

Why are those in the Coalition blaming the Greens then???

Quote:
The comments came after chief political reporter Kieran Gilbert asked Mr Joyce about his claims that The Greens were to blame for increased bushfire risk because of the party’s opposition to hazard reduction burns, particularly in national parks.


Opposition is the optimal word....If the State fire authority wants to do controlled burns the greens can oppose but not prevent....Joyce is a complete ass hole!!!

Perhaps greens at local government level. They are ones that make the rules regarding clearance from buildings for fires. I mean you didn't think they were talking about federal Greens did you?Wink

The state governments are not at the local level. Wink

I have commented on Joyce elsewhere.

Edit: "Green hostility to hazard reduction is on the record, from the light green nimbies who object to smoke, to the green lobbyists who infiltrate government decision-making, to the green activists who embed themselves in government departments and agencies, to the obstructive bureacuratic green tape which makes the job of volunteer firefighters trying to perform cool fuel reduction burns impossible, to the green NGOs who pressure politicians and private companies and greenmail institutional investors, right up to the political arm of green ideology, The Greens Party. There is plenty more. All recorded."

Anyone with more than half a functioning brain knows the greens are a pox on Australia.

I wonder how many soy latte sipping recreational drug taking greenies in Newtown or Balmain are out fighting these bushfires.

Was it leftist lunacy that created this problem?

Qld landholder hit with record $1m penalty for making fire breaks too wide

James Nason, March 23, 2017

How wide can a fire-break be in Queensland?
Getting the answer wrong, despite receiving conflicting advice from several different Queensland Government staff, has just resulted in a Queensland landowner being forced to pay $999,780 in fines and costs.
That figure – a record since Queensland’s Vegetation Management Act came into effect in 1999 – incorporates a $276,000 fine and an order to pay the Government $723, 780 in costs.

In the wake of the severe punishment, which has left the landowner devastated according to his legal team, landowners seeking to undertake future clearing works in areas containing native vegetation, even if for a firebreak, fenceline or road, are being urged to urgently seek legal advice before starting.

Court decision
Michael Vincent Baker of Chess Park, Eidsvold, was this week found guilty in the Brisbane Magistrate Court of the unauthorised clearing of 367.5 hectares of native vegetation.
Mr Baker was found guilty of 39 charges under the Vegetation Management Act and 7 charges under the Forestry Act relating to the width of clearing associated with firebreaks, fence lines and access tracks on his property, and also failing to comply with the self-assessable code for Native Forest Practice.

The total costs incurred by the Queensland Government in pursuing this prosecution, as disclosed to the court, were $2.2 million.

Lack of clarity over allowable fire-break widths:

Mr Marland has previously indicated that before Mr Baker commenced the clearing in question, he contacted 32 different Government employees seeking advice on the acceptable width of fire breaks.
He said he received conflicting advice ranging from 1.5 metres wide to “1.5 times the height of the tallest tree”.

The Vegetation Management Act (VMA) provided an exemption for clearing remnant vegetation if the clearing was to establish a fire break, and provided the break was “no more than 20 metres wide or 1.5 times the height of the nearest vegetation”.
The Act also allowed for “the clearing necessary” to remove or reduce the imminent risk that the vegetation poses of serious personal injury or damage to infrastructure.

Mr Baker was motivated to construct effective fire breaks because his 9242 hectare property Chess Park was almost totally burnt out by bushfire soon after he bought the property in May 2011.
The fires caused $300,000 worth of damage to property infrastructure. After that event, Mr Baker was determined to construct fire breaks to protect his family, property and livestock from future fires.


He said Mr Baker applied the advice of “1.5 times the tallest tree” in determining the width of his fire breaks – narrower firebreaks would provide no protection if a burning tree fell across the break and continued the fire on the other side.
With trees measuring between 18 and 32 metres, an average of 25 metres was applied, resulting in  fire break widths of 40 metres.
Mr Baker advised the Department of his plan and his intention to commence the work.

However, some two years after the work began, he was advised by the Department that his fire breaks were too wide, and legal action followed.

Record punishment
The fine and costs order is the largest handed down since the Vegetation Management Act was enacted in 1999.

Bushfires have a long history in Australia once upon a time we cleared fire breaks and back burnt then leftist idiocy took over and fires have become much worse due to greater fuel loads.
